DVCon 2013: Best Practices in Verification Planning

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

 

Sometimes magic happens at panel discussions at technical conferences, and that was the case mid-day on Wednesday at DVCon in San Jose this week, where the conversation was lively, entertaining and informative on the pedestrian, albeit foundational, topic of “Best Practices in Verification Planning.”

Ironically, the hour-long conversation did not appear to be planned at all, but to be organic and spontaneous.

Q: What kind of IP are people buying these days?

Bernd Stamme: They’re buying everything that has to do with performance – computer performance, networking performance, and elements that control that performance.

The one way you can distinguish yourself from the competition is to go faster. You can use IP for CPUs or GPUs, or off-the-shelf interfaces. At some point, you’ll run out of what you can get, however, and you’ll need to build auxiliary units around it to improve performance for certain operations. Then you’ll be building co-processors, specific circuits to accelerate [the system] and get better performance than your competition.

Q: How do you know what IP to use and when? (more…)
